Silverspike - TapeIt v2.3 (Pc)

Silverspike TapeIt 2 is a VST-Plugin to record audio streams creating wave files in real-time. You can plug TapeIt 2 into your VST host application at any point accepting VST plugins. Unlike most other plugins, TapeIt 2 does not change the sound of your audio. But, while copying the sound unaltered from input to output, TapeIt 2 writes it to a standard WAV file. This way you can grab any audio signal that appears at one of the plugin-points of your audio application.

TapeIt 2 expands the possibilities of your audio software by adding exciting new export features:

1. Use TapeIt as a channel insert plugin for quick track bouncing or freezing.
2. Export accurate mix-downs in realtime. And listen in while exporting.
3. Record your VST instruments in realtime while playing.
4. Record your plugins while tweaking their parameters in realtime.
5. Put TapeIt before and/or after an effect plugin to record the dry and/or wet signal.
6. Use TapeIt to monitor any specific point in the signal chain.
7. Use more than one instance of TapeIt simultaneously
8. Bounce multiple tracks at once in an easy way.
